Hi. One of my Polish chickens (15 wks old) was attacked this morning by something. From the looks of the wound we are thinking it may have been a chicken hawk or ravens that are in the area this morning. I later seen two large black birds which I am assuming are ravens due to being large (I guess they could be crows, not sure), land in the round pen by the chicken coop and run after the attach had happened and I see they are again sitting on the round pen rails as I write this. I let my chickens out every morning to free range in a larger fenced in area that is not covered. The left side of the face of my chicken is missing, see picture. I don't know how long he laid wounded but it couldn't have been more than 15 minutes from my letting the chickens out to when my husband came in to tell me he found the chicken attacked. He is still breathing but is pretty still other than an occasional movement when I laid him down in the bin I placed him in, his head just flops if it is not held, so he is pretty bad, I think. I put a heat lamp over him for a little while because his legs were really cold but because it is in the 80's on our enclosed porch I have turned it off and just have him covered with a towel. He is laying on a bed of Bermuda hay in a plastic bin. I sprayed his wound with Vetericyn (http://www.vetericyn.com/) which was like a miracle medicine when one of my horses had a badly infected eye with thick white puss covering his eye, applying the Vetericyn a few times that day and his eye was almost completely well the next day and my other horse had rain rot which is very hard to get rid of and takes a while to get rid of, I applied Vetericyn and it went away within one week. So I figure it couldn't hurt to try this on my chicken since it doesn't hurt to get in the eye or to ingest it. I am using a syringe to give him a little sugar water and I can see he swallows some of it, I am only putting a drop at a time because even though he swallows it sounds like he is having a difficult time breathing while swallowing as he makes a few gurgling noises. It looks like there are two bones from his jaw area sticking out but his throat seems to be intact. It looks as if something just pulled the skin and little meat that is there on the head off maybe in one pull. He also have a small wound in the middle of his back like a peck wound. I also treated it with Vetericyn. He appears to be breathing normally, not fast or hard. Is there anything else I can do to help him? How am I going to get him to eat anything to keep his strength up when just drinking drips of water seems to be difficult for him although he can do it, it appears? Please, any help will be appreciated.
